    This is a chandelier I had in my shop years ago and is long since sold. There was some controversy as to the maker. Nothing was signed. Sorry for the quality of the photos; they are all I have left of it. The fixture body is brass with a aged patina and is in an organic thistle design. What do you think? Handel or Sechrist?
    The following is from leadedlamps.com (love this site!):
    "This series of Pond Lily designs, borrow heavily from those of the Handel Company who patented the design in 1902. Since 1902, other makers in addition to Sechrist have immitated this line and caused confusion in the market place as to the true identity of the maker might be. For starters, the Handel Pond lilies have a solid bronze base with embossed Handel name. Sechrist and some others instead carry a 4 digit number. Sockets too tend to be different. Handels are normally found with those by Hubbel."
    Catalog picture is Sechrist.

      Handel is my best guess.
